#1

Was wondering if anyone could tell me whats the best cheap DVD+R DL?
I know that Verbatim is the best and Philips stuff is quite good but as there nearly twice the price of some others wondering if anyone can tell if they’ve had good/bad experiences with them.

Please vote in the poll above or slag me off for missing some random brand which is obvious far superior to them all :stuck_out_tongue:

it is best to use Verbatim DL media (MKM001). others hav not been promising, and burn at 2.4x only.

Listen to raygay, he speaks the truth :wink:

Ooooooh just spotted something interesting . . .

As i work for a computer parts resellers i have access to our product database and have just spotted something quite interesting:

“DVD+R/8.5GB 4xspd JC 5pk”

By the look of it is a 4x DL only other detail i can get at the moment is that its made by Imation, prices looks quite good to @ £13.76 before VAT and mark up pitty we got none in stock i would be buying them . . .

I did 3 verbatim’s this weekend and they all worked great(2.4x and dvd decrypter).What brand is that “DVD+R/8.5GB 4xspd JC 5pk”?

Didn’t know that imation made DL media.

As for the 4x speed can’t get anymore details at the moment at all so sorry on that one . . .

The Traxdata DVD+R DL works great on my NEC-3520 burner. Don’t use this media on the 3500 because it will give you crap DVD’s.

Traxdata DVD+R DL & NEC-3520 are a good couple! I will post some pics later…

We got a direct link as i can’t seem to find it?


#11

Just got some Verbatim DLs from CompUSA. I hope they’ll work well with my Sony DRX-700UL :stuck_out_tongue: - I also saw Memorex DL - same rate ($19.99 for 3).

All of those brands are kind of moot as a number of them have the same manufacturer. (ie Memorex, Traxdata, Ridata and Ridisc are all produced by Ritek). I have to agree with the posts above though. Verbatim (Mitsubishi Chemicals) seems to produce the best overall results for D/L media.

The Verbatim are the best ones (ID: MKM001). And you can now find them in several shops for 6,90 euros!
